th. authorities have been searching for her since then. loudoun county sheriff steve simpson joins us in studio this morning with more on this case. sheriff, thank you for coming in. we did speak to your department a few weeks ago but some time has gone by. have there been new developments or leads in this case? >> we're looking for information from anybody who may have some. i think obviously someone we have probably already talked to or interviewed by this case probably has information about the case they have not come forward with yet. so we're looking for anything. the longer the time frame goes by where she's been missing, the more serious it gets and obviously the more likelihood there is foul play involved. at this point we still have a missing person. and we don't know the circumstances, we don't know if she's somewhere of her own free will or if there is foul play involved. we kind of suspect that. the longer the time period goes by, the more likely that is. >> and you suspect it and we understand it with the amount of time that has gone by but there is no real evidence at th
us. 9:00. we want to find out what is going on with our weather. tucker barnes is downstairs in the weather center with that. >> good morning. st. patrick's day kicking off with sunshine and a beautiful afternoon. not typical this time of year. temperatures will be in the middle 60s with bright sunshine. here you go. your official st. pat's day forecast. very nice, sunny and mild. temperatures a good 10 degrees above where they should be. mid-60s this afternoon. and unlike yesterday when the sun was here and there, we should have bright sunshine for most of the day today. so nice looking forecast. here is a picture of your satellite radar and you can see very quiet weather across the area, just a few clouds in the mountains out to the west but we should be in for dry weather today and mostly sunny skies. if you look out to the west into indiana and ohio, not much going on. so tomorrow the nice weather trend continues. in fact about 10 degrees warmer tomorrow. so get ready for a couple of beautiful days. a mild afternoon and 65 degrees. you're reading it right. winds out of th
't adding up. and then what gave us the break in the case was the forensic evidence, when we started analyzing that, it just didn't corroborate what we were being told. >> and the original story was at least that she had put out there were two masked assailants, that they had been beaten and also sexually assaulted, none of this is true? >> well the deceased victim had been beaten and killed. we believe that the injuries to mrs. norwood were self- inflicted and there is no indication right now there was anyone else involved but this is still an active investigation. we're not finished. but right now no indication of anyone else's involvement. >> any motive yet? it's hard to understand a crime like this, but are you closer to getting any motive? there were reports that maybe there was merchandise stolen or perhaps from mrs. norwood, but is there any motive? >> we're following up on all of that. we're interviewing all of the employees of the store to try to get an idea of what may be present here. so we're following up on all of that. >> earlier we reported, when we weren't sure of who
